Brothers are our first love and we hold them very close to our hearts. We spend our childhood together, growing and learning new things every day. Even though they tease us all the time and we may end up arguing and fighting with them, we know that no matter what, our brothers will always have our back.
We know we have someone to rely on in our troubled times because they will always protect us no matter what. We share our secrets, things we cannot even tell our parents. Such is the bond that we share with our brothers. They mean the world to us and more and when they leave us alone in this world, we almost find it impossible to function. The time stops as we just don’t know how to get by without someone we have known our whole lives.
If you know someone who is dealing with such an immense loss, now is the time to come forward and show your solidarity. Let them know that they are not alone in their grief and that they have you to rely on. It will only cost you a few seconds and some words, but for someone grieving, your words might mean a new hope to live.
You can pick one from the following listed messages to convey your condolences for a brother, brother-in-law, a friend’s brother, or the brother of someone you might happen to know.

Behold! I tell you a mystery. We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed.

If there ever comes a day when we can’t be together, keep me in your heart, I’ll stay there forever
Winnie the Pooh
I honor my brother’s sacrifice, the same way I honored him when he was alive

God gave us memory so that we might have roses in December
James M. Barrie
Wisdom is nothing more than healed pain
Death is never easy to deal with, let alone the death of a brother who we have cherished all our life. In this tough time, be kind and generous. You can show your generosity by contributing towards the funeral cost or the cost of a repast. Even if you cannot contribute financially, you can always contribute emotionally. Use your words to console the grieving. Maybe your soothing words are all that they need.
Remember, it is never wise to compare the magnitudes of grief. Everyone processes grief in their own way. Avoid bringing up any differences from the past and making any comment on the character of the dead. Talking bad about the dead is not only rude but is also considered very callous. It will not only hurt the sentiments of the family, but they may also get angry with your behavior and things might escalate.
Stick to the matter and hand. Being respectful is always considered wise.
